There you are, a week away from your anniversary and you have no clue what you're going to get your awesome spouse. You rack your brain, but you've already exhausted all your clever gift ideas on birthday's, Christmas and Valentine's Day. I know, I 've been there.
So I decided to do some research to find out what your "supposed" to get your spouse for every anniversary milestone. Below is a list by year what the Traditional Theme gifts are and what the Modern Theme gifts are. However, you'll notice that some anniversaries overlap in terms of the type of gifts for each theme. But this should be a pretty great start for you to get some ideas for the love of your life.
